Jason Lee shows us once again why he holds a National Trick Innovator of the Year title. Jason is one of the most creative minds in yo-yoing. It was great to be able to get together with him and put together another video like we’ve been doing since 2000. It’s been about 3 years since Jason left Southern California to go serve in the military overseas. I was glad to have him back home even for just a little bit before he heads off again, this time to Asia.
Warning: The video contains some adult language in it, so please keep that in mind before viewing.

I’ve been a fan of Miguel Correa’s for some time. Following him from way back, The Texas Crew era. For years he and the other members of The Texas Crew were great promoters of our small community. It was always a good day when The Texas Crew released a new video, Eric Hesterman, Jesse Garcia, and Miguel put out some amazing video’s that advanced everyone’s playing level.
It’s always good to see good things happen to good people. For Miguel and the yo-yoing community the Genesis is a good thing. This beauty is a player first, followed up by some beauty. YoYoFactory and Miguel equate to some good vibes.

Had a chance to kick off the year hanging out with some of the DXL Crew. I spent most of the week home sick so it was nice to get out. By the way, we’ll be having our first SoCal Yo-Yo class next Saturday, January 16, 2010 @ 1:00pm at the Starbucks on the corner of South Street and Gridley (Right across the street from the mall) in Cerritos. Bring all your questions, theories, and tricks you want to learn or discuss and we’ll help you out. Don’t be afraid. Seriously, don’t be afraid. We always get a couple new players who come and sit off to the side and yo-yo by themselves. Even after I introduce them to everyone they head straight for the side again to be by themselves. C’mon guys, stop being so intimidated.
Alex brought along a couple new flavors of his “i” yo-yo for us to throw around. The engraving on the red looks like a bandana. Pretty sweet especially if you’re a gangbanger and want matching gear. (That’s a joke, we don’t gangbang… not anymore at least.) pssst…. that’s another joke. Geez, why you all so uptight. The two new flavors should be making their way to the stores shortly. I forgot exactly where they are headed but I’ll try to give you guys a heads up when I talk to him again.
Also, I got to try some string that James made. Not James Lac, but little James. I think he calls them “Sick String”. He does a pretty good job with them and they feel nice. Haven’t had a chance to see how they wear after a few hours yet, but so far so good. Check them out if you can. Anyways, that’s all for now.
A big shout out to all my Duncan heads. I miss you guys. Let’s hang soon.
This past Halloween I met up with a few of the guys from RecRev and we shot this video featuring the new yo-yo i. The i is the smoothest yo-yo that Alex has made up to date. Of the samples that he had with him, most had absolutely no vibe and felt good to throw. Pick one up if you have a chance, they should be shipping to retailers in about two weeks.
